This One-Pot Cajun Black-Eyed Peas & Rice will be a new favorite recipe in your house too! It really doesn’t get easier. I cook the rice in the same pot, which totally saves on clean-up time too! There is nothing worse than the after-supper aftermath. With 6 people in our house now, it looks like a tornado came through our kitchen after any meal. It’s way past time for me to start training our big kids to help out more with the clean-up process. I know it’s so important to build responsibility in kids. I really want my kids to know this house doesn’t run itself, and they have to do their part even with after-school stuff and homework. Beginning a routine in our house where that becomes a process is definitely on my to-do list.
- 1.5 lbs ground beef
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 small bell pepper, chopped
- 2 stalks celery, chopped
- 1 tsp creole seasoning
- 1 10 oz. can Rotel*
- 1 can sliced mushrooms
- 1 envelope dry onion soup mix
- 2 cans black-eyed peas, drained
- 1 cup rice
- 1 cup water
- In a large pot, brown ground beef with onion, celery, and bell pepper. Add seasoning.
- Add Rotel, onion soup mix, mushrooms and stir well.
- Add black-eyed peas and stir.
- Add rice and water and stir. Bring it to a boil. Put a lid on the pot. Reduce heat down to low and let the rice cook for 20 to 30 minutes. Do not remove the lid before 20 minutes to make sure rice cooks well. After about 20 minutes, you can check to see if rice is cooked. If not, replace the lid and cook it a little longer. You can add a little more water to help steam the rice little more as well.
*If you don't have dry onion soup mix, you can just increase the seasoning a little.
